It’s literally called Wingman.

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who are on dating apps, and those who AREN’T on dating apps, but do some profile-editing or matching for their single friends every time they’re out.

Jks, obviously there are way more kinds of people in the world, but there’s a good chance you fall into one of the two above categories. If you’re the single person on the app, you’re all like, ‘Ugh, love sucks, I hate everything and everyone,’ and if you’re the friend, you’re constantly reminding your friend she’s a catch and that any person would be lucky to be with her, yada-yada-yada.

Well, for anyone who thinks they’d be a pro-matchmaker for their pals, there’s an app for that! Or there WILL be an app.

Meet Wingman, a new dating app that allows people to play Cupid for their single friends. It was developed by Tina Wilson, who’s based in London, after she found there wasn’t an easy way for loved-up friends to set her up after a breakup.

With Wingman, the power lies with the friend who’s doing all the setting up. They create the profile, they approve the matches, and then it’s up to the single friend to take it from there. It’s basically like putting your Tinder or Bumble, or whatever app you’re using, in your friend’s hands, except they don’t have to physically be there with you.

Aside from letting your friends do all the annoying hard work for you, it’s also a sweet idea because bragging about yourself is weird. Your friend will talk you up until the cows come home, which should hopefully result in someone else’s Wingman realising how amazing you would be for their buddy.

Wingman is currently in beta mode, but is set to officially launch this week. Let the match-making games begin.
